My family LOVED this recipe, and a few who didn't think they liked grits were its biggest fans :) I did make a few alterations; I really seasoned the water the grits were cooked in (salt & pepper) and added a small can of diced green chilies when I stirred the butter and cheese in. I used bacon instead of sausage, but the bacon gets soft and is not as appealing, so I would definitely use sausage next time. When scrambling the eggs, I would leave them chunky so you would have discernible bites of egg in the casserole. I also added a can of diced green chilies to the egg mixture, and used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. The dish was medium-level spicy, but everyone loved it. It doesn't re-heat (say in the microwave) with the same consistency because grits keep absorbing available moisture, so you need to cook and stir it in a pot on the stove top with a little added milk or butter to make it creamy again. VERY yummy, love love love it!
